Stayed Tuned for Upcoming Events!
Amazing! Wonderful! Lively! Awesome! Positive! Crazy Busy! were common adjectives used to describe Sunday’s The Sycamore St. Experience. The inaugural block party attracted a steady stream of hundreds of people throughout the day who strolled up and down the street enjoying the diverse array of permanent businesses and their guest vendors, including Old Towne’s River Street Market.
DJ Foot’s steady beat kept things lively and flautist Iris Schwartz briefly joined the acoustic Bowl’d Sojer Band and together they sounded terrific. People sang, people danced, and people shopped virtually non-stop.
Event coordinator Kimberly Ann Calos was beyond thrilled about not only the turnout but the fact that all of the participants had an incredible day of sales. Smiles were abundant as vaccinated folks revealed their beautiful, mask-less faces. Residents and artisans Alain and Aimee Joyaux shared the art of printing with attendees who made souvenir, “You are Beautiful” prints.
“Oh my God! I had a GREAT time! Sign me up for next time! exclaimed LaKisha Manning, a vendor invited to participate by 24-year Sycamore St. business veteran, Karen Harris, owner of Karen’s House of Beauty.
River Street Market vendor Genevieve Lohr summed it up really well. “It was a great day of community.”
